    Bought from Massons Mills, built by Wainwright 1800. Looks like it was used to guide and press something. I originally thought it was a belt hole press but when the handle is pressed a pin slides down as if to pierce or press something but when it reaches the bottom plate, the outer square shank also presses down and no pressure is felt at the pin! I would appreciate any info please

      And the anti-gravity feature doesn't impress you ? LOL!! Somebody here will probably know. Welcome to CyberAsylum, aka CW.

      I think it is an early stapler of sorts.

      What you have is a circa 1915 IDL Automatic Eyelet Punch No.2 It was patented around 1915 and it has a primary purpose of fastening documents together in a more secure manner than staples.
